Izu_Korasu on Dragon Knights

you may be better off pretending its a mono-white deck with Khorvath Brightflame at the helm. Which isnt that far off from the list -the few bulk dragons.

It may be tedious, but adding lands will help immensely, both from a "commander decks with partner have a 98 card deck" stance, but also help you tune the manabase to fit your curve and deckoverall.

budget knights like Benalish Marshal , Kabira Vindicator , Lightwielder Paladin , Riftmarked Knight , and Valiant Knight may be taking a look at, as are some less budget like Knight Exemplar or Kinsbaile Cavalier

if you are interested in more dragons, Ancestor Dragon , Scalelord Reckoner , Sunscorch Regent , Dream Pillager , Moltensteel Dragon and Tyrant's Familiar may be a good starting point.

i would also consider cards like Sigiled Sword of Valeron , Gideon's Phalanx , Militant Angel , Waylay or cards like Changeling Hero

that all being said, best of luck in completing the deck .... i may have to built a KNIGHT deck now (with a dragon commander)

I also like Sun Droplet, Pristine Talisman, Path of Bravery, Twilight Prophet, Invoke the Divine and Blind Obedience.

Some weak cards I can spot are: Lena, Selfless Champion, Ancestor Dragon, Abhorrent Overlord, Flaying Tendrils. Also, the White sun seems like overkill - dumping all your mana that this deck has so many amazing ways of using into JUST 2/2 cats seems like a waste to me.

hejtmane I realize that samurai tribal isn't the strongest idea out there. That's partially the reason I wanted to build this deck. I like the idea with Sensei Golden-Tail. I'll look into it. As for Ancestor Dragon, I'm really digging it. I'm a really big fan of the art work. I'll definatly consider Ring of Thune and Citadel Siege. Thanks for your help!

Unfortunately samuari are one of the weakest tribal's created great at defending terrible at offense most the time it is easier to let the samurai hit you then pump out more damage than they can. Trust me tried to help a friend build a modern deck and it was so underwhelming. Now things that would help would be +1/+1 counters and how far are you willing to stretch the theme. Spirits and dragons maybe or only certain ones ? Then we can maybe expand the creature list to help and Sensei Golden-Tail should be your Commander then you can get him out earlier and pump the bushido tokens they stack. In little more on what you limitations are for this deck and that would help like it needs to have a certain type of drawing maybe for the art Like the Ancestor Dragon

TypicalTimmy on Is the Global Series legal ...

The Global Series is a new attempt to diversify and bring players from the Chinese market into the game.

As such, these cards are only Standard legal in China itself. They are globally legal in Legacy and Vintage. They are NOT Modern legal.

But nowhere in the entire article does it list EDH.

Are these cards Commander legal? Gatherer says "This card is not playable in any formats." with regards to Ancestor Dragon So, if the official WOTC page promoting the product specifically lists three formats it is legal in (With Standard being restricted to just China), but Gatherer contradicting this, who do we believe and how do we find out about Commander?

No data for this card yet.
